B&M What does L/S mean?

looking at 2 similar B&M light mounts 475DU and 474DU. I need to know the dimensions of each but all I see is L/S. What does L/S mean?

The two have slightly different shapes. This is from a scrreen shot from their 2020 catalog:


I can look at the photos above and guess just as well as you can how the shapes vary.

The 474DU is in the photo below on my road bike.



Or, at least I bought what I think was the 474DU, they told me I was getting the 474DU. They no longer stock it.

That is all the help I can give.

they appear to be the same overall length. Is the 475 the longer overall? Any info on the 471U?
